Improperly secured safety equipment likely responsible for architect’s fall

Some incredibly sad news from New York Daily News:

A dizzy spell may have caused the death of a New Jersey architect who fell off a midtown skyscraper, officials said Friday.

Bruno Travalja, 52, of Ridgewood, N.J., was wearing a safety harness but it wasn’t tied to anything when he plummeted from a deck on the 47th floor of the skyscraper at 153 W. 53rd St. near 7th Ave. Thursday afternoon, officials said.

He was taking measurements when he plummeted, landing on a second floor ledge at the rear of the building, police said.
